About Katherine

I am a fifth and sixth grade math teacher in Canaan, CT. This is my third year here! Before that, I was a 2nd/3rd grade combined grade classroom teacher in Hartford, CT. I graduated from the University of Hartford in 2012 with a double major in Elementary Education and Behavioral Studies, and I'm graduating from Central Connecticut State University in June with my master's in Educational Leadership! I am enrolled at Sacred Heart University, beginning in September, to get my administrative degree to be a principal someday soon.

I have been an elementary school math teacher for three years, and love it. My students are successful in passing all of their SBAC tests, but more importantly, I've had many students tell me that they used to hate math, but now they love it.

When I worked in Hartford, my 2/3 graders all averaged a one-grade level growth in their reading level by the end of the year. I have a true love of reading and would love to instill that in others!

I love the Common Core. I write about the Common Core for a great educational website and have led discussions about how my classroom is a truly accessible common core classroom. I am passionate about changing the bad reputation the standards have and making them accessible for students and parents!

I hope to hear from you, and would LOVE to tutor you this spring and summer!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Common Core

As a math teacher, my classroom is a prime example of the Common Core standards in action. I am well-versed in making them accessible and understandable to both parents & students. Additionally, I am a "pro-CCSS" blogger for a math & ELA website used nationwide. My classroom has been observed as a "well functioning CCSS-aligned classroom" by my administrators and peers.
